Met Opera Encore: La Forza del Destino

March 23, 12:00 PM4:30 PM

$16 – $19

Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Giuseppe Verdi’s grand tale of ill-fated love, deadly vendettas, and family strife, with stellar soprano Lise Davidsen as the noble Leonora, one of the repertory’s most tormented – and thrilling – heroines. Director Mariusz Treliński delivers the company’s first new Forza in nearly 30 years, setting the scene in a contemporary world and making extensive use of the Met’s turntable to represent the unstoppable advance of destiny that drives the opera’s chain of calamitous events. The distinguished cast also features tenor Brian Jagde as Leonora’s forbidden beloved, Don Alvaro; baritone Igor Golovatenko as her vengeful brother, Don Carlo; bass-baritone Patrick Carfizzi as Fra Melitone; and bass Soloman Howard as both Leonora’s father and Padre Guardiano.

This performance is a high-definition rebroadcast from the Metropolitan Opera in New York City. The run time is 4 hours, 25 minutes.

Tickets: $19 adult, $17 student + senior, $16 child. This event is eligible for the Youth Arts Access Fund.
